The shrill siren brought the fire department and many residents out of their slumbers at about 5 o'clock Mon day morning in response to an alarm sent in from the Arcade cafe. The fire, which had a nice start i when discovered, is supposed to have been caused by live coals in ashes dumped against the west wall of the building, and had eaten its way well into the wall before being discover ed. The employes of the cafe had swell ed smoke for about an hour before they were able to locate its source. It was at first thought that something was wrong with the furnace but a/ter assuring themselves fhat this was not the case, the fire was located on the outside of the building. An alarm was immediately sent in and the fire department responded in a very short time. It was found necessary to use water in fighting the blaze, but sev eral small tanks of chemicals were used. The danger of throwing ashes con taining live coals against anything of an inflammable nature at this time of the year can not be overestimated and greater care is urged by the author ities.—Wolf Point Herald. DANIELS COUNTY HAS ROCKY HIGHWAY AHEAD Movement Started in Scobey for New County up North Is Opposed in Opheim Country. of The proposed county of Daniels which is being fathered by the citi zens and boosters of Scobey and vi cinity is to have some rough sledding, from reports brought down from the north country. To counteract the movement already started, citizens of the Opheim coun try have formed an association to promote an opposition county to be known as Bench county. The Opheim (Observer covers their side of the question as follows: "An enthusiastic mass meeting was held last Thursday evening in the Mela building to devise ways and means to head off the proposed county of Daniels from annexing a part of Valley county, which project has been taking up the time of all Scobey of late. It seems that Daniels county would like to take about fifteen town ships from Valley county, while resi dents of that territory would rather be in another county formed from the north half of Valley county than to go with Daniels county. Therefore, petitions are out against Daniels county which will doubtless more than offset the petitions for it. The meeting also took up the prop osition of making a new county out of the north half of Valley county, with the south line running along the cor rection line between townships 32 and 33. It was agreed that the new coun ty be named Bench county, and a com mittee of five was elected, with R. C. Arnold as president, to put the county idea in motion. The Bench county boosters organiza tion was formed to look after the in terests of the new county. A subscrip tion of $2500 was made up at the meeting to defray the expenses of the workers. A committeeman will be appointed for each precinct to get signers to the petition, which will be presented to the county commission ers as soon as the desired number of signers are obtained." The petitions for the creation of A SANE SYSTEM In these days of tinkering with tlie social machinery, it is refreshing to learn of one plan for the betterment of our daily ÜM's that demands neither revolution nor evolution lor the attainment of its objective. Community Service is helping America do for itself in peace what, as War Camp Community Service, it aided a warring America to do. Just as in war the organization enabled com munities to' get the greatest value for the men in uniform from their recreational resources, so now it aims to stimulate com munities to obtain for all the people the best results from leisure time opportunities. But, there is one great difference between the war work and the peace work—in the great strug gle we were building for war and destruction; we are building now for peace and construction. Community Service is getting together the finest elements : in the nation's life—regard for our neighbors, affection for our lu.mes, interest in the place where we dwell—and blending them i i.vtn a force working, not for our soldiers at war, but for our ■' s.ildiers come back from war, for the men and women at home, ] tu:' everybody in each community. Mothers and fathers, sis ä icrs, sweethearts, brothers, can all unite in Community Service ] with the satisfying knowledge that their endeavors are going ^ to be reflected in better, sweeter, brighter local conditions, il This, we take it, will meet with the approval of every Amer 'Î u an. During the war a new spirit of comradeship was born I in city, town and hamlet; a spirit particularly conspicuous in b »Irise places uniting through War (amp Community Service I to extend hospitality to the men in olive drab and blue.

On Tuesday about noon Mrs. Etta | Hogers passed away at her home on Fourth avenue south, in this city. She had been ailing for several days, but was not considered in a serious condi tion, and her sudden death was a shock to her many friends.

She hud endeared herself to a wide public by her delightful reminiscences of her father and of the other famous Victorians among whom her early life was spent. If ns a novelist she achieved no popular success she was incomparable In relating anecdotes «f the sort that Illuminate, about the many remarkable men and women whom she had known Intimately. It Is much to be regretted that, in obedience to Thackeray's dy ing wish, she was precluded from writing her father's "Life." Ritchie's "Thackeray" would have ranked with Lockhart's "Scott." Lady Ritchie's charming Introductions to the biographical edition FAMOS" ELEVATOR (Continued from page 1) held on call of the president, within the next six months, the result of such investigation^ "Furthermore, we recommend that all members of this asociation become members of the Northeastern Montana Auditing association. "Whereas, we, as growers of grain realize that the final success of our business is conditioned upon the basic practice of fair play and equal justice in all economic relations and "Whereas,, the legislative assembly have enacted a tax law with the pur pose and effect of shifting the public burden from the powerful organized interests to the powerless, unorgan ized farmers, therefore be it, "Resolved, that we are farmer pro ducers of grain do protest with all our might against this unjust law, and we do demand its repeal at the earliest possible moment. In place of this law we demand a tax system under which the public burden shall fall uniformly on all interests. If the mines of Mon tana are to be taxed upon their net proceeds, we insist that the farms must be taxed upon their net proceeds, but if the farmer is to be taxed on all he possesses, we demand that the min ing corporations must pay taxes on all they possess. If the banks of the state are to be taxed on their initial invest ment alone, and the farmers on the present value of all that he owns as | well as what he owes, we insist that the banks also be taxed in the same "And to this purpose we pledge our hearty co-operation with everybody in Montana who is looking for the same end." This organization fills a big gap that will be of very great importance to the farmers of the five counties. When this organization gets to working they will buy feed and seed in train loads instead of carlots and will buy direct from the farmers where it is produced and thus cut out three to six commission men in St. Paul or Minneapolis, who live off of us under the present system. This method of buying will greatly reduce the price to the farmer here and raise it to the farmer producer. The organization will work in the reverse when we sell produce. The managers present were all anx ious to get organized under one head and thus always be in touch with each other and at the same time have their buying and selling powers greatly in creased. The elevators in this associ ation will be in a position to serve their farmers much better and the success of this organization is assured. Murray E. Stebbins, County Agent.
